Level crossing removed

The Werribee Street, Werribee level crossing will be removed by building a new rail bridge over Werribee Street. The rail bridge will allow for both freight and passenger trains and will be about one kilometre long.

This design enhances the significant upgrades that are already underway at Wyndham Park and will open the space below the rail line for the community to enjoy.

The removal of this level crossing will improve travel for the 20,000 vehicles that travel through this crossing daily, which is a key connection between Werribee and Wyndham Vale.

Major construction has begun to remove the dangerous and congested level crossing at Werribee Street, which is now expected to be removed in 2021, well ahead of the original 2022 target.

For regular information about the progress of this project, sign up for email updates.

If you’d like to receive text message project alerts about traffic and construction disruptions text Werribee to 0438 479 376.

On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is removing 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
